It's ALL about the Meatballs | FOOD / TRENDS

(image via Bon Appetit)

In the footsteps of mac & cheese, tater tots and sliders...Meatballs are the newest stars of the quickly expanding comfort food trend...And these little critters are popping up everywhere!  Even Bon Appetit Restaurant Editor, Andrew Knowlton named the Meatball the 'Dish of the Year'...  We simply can't disagree.

Coming in all forms, shapes and sizes, here are a few meatball offerings we've seen around in NYC:

Meatball Diversity:
The Meatball Shop
84 Stanton St.
New York, NY

The Meatball Shop, slated for February 9 opening, will keep it's doors open until 4am, catering to the LES late night crowd.
"It's the kind of homey, hip farmhouse where you'll happily drop by to overindulge on a spaghetti/meatball/beer trifecta before (or after) wandering out into the regal wilds of the LES. Walking in, know that you'll be entering a world littered with all manner of esoteric yet comforting and addictive little balls of meat—spicy pork, veggie, chicken, salmon—that you can pair with various carb vessels like pastas (the aforementioned spaghetti and meatballs), breads (heroes and sliders) or...nothing."

Competitive DIY Meatballs:
Last month, we checked out the sold-out Meatball Slapdown, a meatball-creation competition hosted by Brooklyn Grange and The Meat Hook. Entries included balls from Frankie's Spuntino, Bamonte's, Roebling Tea Room, The Meat Hook and Roberta's (whose fennel-infused recipe was a knockout hit with Zandl Group President Irma Zandl and Editor/Trend Analyst Paige Newman -- Word is, keep your eyes out for the meatballs special to pop up on the Roberta's menu...it's a rarity).

Meatballs & Body Art:
The Smile
26 Bond St. (bet. Bowery and Lafayette)
New York, NY

This cafe, store & em...tattoo parlor (??) sports a Moroccan Lamb Meatball dish.
"Curated by former Earnest Sewn guru Carlos Quirarte and his partner Matt Kliegman, The Smile is sort of like an old-timey country general store, except modern and perfectly suited for the city. Set in an 1831 building with a history of multi-tasking (the previous tenant was that classic combination, antique store/massage parlor), the cafe/shop is just how you'd picture it: old wood everywhere, Edison bulbs and plenty of exposed brick."
[via UrbanDaddy]

Couture Meatballs:
Armani Ristorante 5th Avenue
717 5th Ave.
New York, NY

Even the Armani Ristorante on 5th Ave. features an upscale version, the 'Polpettine Di Cinghiale Alla Cacciatora', wild boar meatballs with a mushroom sauce and greens. It's on the 'bar menu' and at $22, these meatballs will totally compliment those Armani shopping bags.

Meatballs on Wheels:
Eurotrash
106 N. 3rd (at Berry)
Brooklyn, NY

We've spotted the Eurotrash truck in Williamsburg, Brooklyn...and we've seen first hand the late night crowds from the nearby bars Levee and Radegast Beer Hall, aching for some frugal-friendly Swedish Meatballs to go. So if you're partying it up late night in the Williamsburg hood, with visions of Ikea Swedish meatballs dancing through your head, make your way over to N. 3rd for a quick fix...Oh, and they also serve Belgian fries and deep-fried Mars bars...if you like variety. Hats off to the genius who combined two of the biggest trends in food right now -- food trucks & meatballs. FYI, the truck is closed for the Winter...but if you shoot them the request (and for the right price), they'll come to you: "We can park our truck in front of your event and give your guests the full Eurotrash experience". Catering available all winter long.

Hot & Spicy Meatballs:
The Bon Appetit blog steps us through a mouth-watering, unique Vietnamese Banh Mi recipe featuring pork meatballs, complete with mayo and Sriracha...Check it out:
Make this ASAP: Vietnamese Banh Mi Sandwich Recipe: bonappetit.com


With the heavy surge in comfort foods, and the big focus on meat in general (butchers are gaining big cool points these days), it's making it harder and harder for us vegetarians to stand our ground without being enticed by all the divine offerings...VegCooking Blog offers a list of the top 10 Vegan Meatballs in America, with featured balls from NYC all the way to Portland...And now, after all that, I sure am hungry.

Experts have talked about this before. How many times have you read about the importance of ‘adding value’ for your audience? How many times have you read about ‘building trust’ with your readers/prospects?
Many, many times. You know it well. Every marketing guru has spoken about this topic. I’m sick of hearing it. But it STILL bears repeating.
